Valve have finally released Louis, Francis, Bill and Zoey back into the wild in a new official campaign for Left 4 Dead.
Set between (fan favourite) No Mercy & Death Toll, Crash Course attempts to copy L4D2’s practice of linking the narrative of the campaigns by explaining how the duo trio erm, four survivors end up in the middle of nowhere following their rooftop escape from Mercy Hospital.
The campaign covers just two maps and is designed for quick-fire Versus games (as opposed to the more drawn-out marathon maps included).
Crash Course is available for free on PC via Steam and for 560 points over Xbox Live.
NB – Some admin kerfuffle somewhere down the line has meant it was released on XBL for 800 MSP. Major Nelson has advised everyone to not buy it at this price – changes have been made which are filtering slowly across XBL as I type.
Crash Course delivers new single-player, multiplayer and co-operative gameplay and bridges the storyline between the No Mercy and Death Toll campaigns in the original game. To celebrate, we are offering Left 4 Dead at 50% off for 3 days. Or share the fun – get the Left 4 Dead Four Pack and give the game to your friends.
While containing both Survival maps and a Co-operative Campaign, the primary goal of Crash Course is to deliver a complete Versus mode experience in just 30 minutes, resulting in a streamlined version of the game’s existing Versus campaigns.
